For those who have been paying close attention, every entry's title so far is stolen from a song lyric. Surprisingly, I've only been caught out on cultural referencing twice. In Winterpeg, coming up with suitable lyrics to foreshadow whatever I was about to express was often a grueling task. Simply, there are no songs about Canada. Unfortunately, that song Alan plays on the occarina has no words: Winter Goodbye.

Now that I'm in NYC, however, there is no such struggle; I have an almost unlimited list of songs to pilfer from. In fact, from now I will have multiple titles. That said, I will not sink to using Frankie.

More to come shortly.

sometimes people just don't look any deeper
Varg Vikkernes, the man behind the Black Metal band Burzum, now serving the maximum allowable sentence in Norway (21 years) for the murder of fellow scene-setter Euronymous (from the other Black Metal band Mayhem) had a similar dilemma.

The date he chose to knife Euronymous to death was the 6th of June. It also happened to be the sixth day of the week. "O-ho," said the newspaper people, "this must have been some sort of satanic ritual thing".

Vikkernes was later heard to complain bitterly, when interviewed in jail, that not one person had commented on the fact that the first ever documented Viking raid also happened on a the 6th of June (in 893 AD, if memory serves).
